Super Bowl Facts from fox news:
• By the time the final whistle blows at Super Bowl XLIII, they say, Americans will have downed 156 billion calories, mostly from greasy pizzas, fried chicken wings and beer.
• The typical Super Bowl party-goer consumes 1,300 calories through food alone — not including beer, soda and wine. It may be as much as 2,500 calories depending on the person and the party.
• One out of seven Americans orders take-out or restaurant-delivery food on Super Bowl Sunday. At least 58 percent order pizza, 50 percent scarf chicken wings and 20 percent go for a sub or sandwich.
• One in 20 Americans watch the Super Bowl at restaurants or bars.
• Americans double their average daily consumption of snacks on Super Bowl Sunday, consuming more than 33 million pounds of treats in one day.
• Super Bowl fans spend more than $50 million on food during the 4 days prior to the Super Bowl.
• An additional $11.8 million is sold in beer prior to Super Bowl Sunday
• Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest winter grilling day of the year.
